Nilgiris Vegetable Kurma

A very popular recipe from the land of Nilgiris. The main uniqueness to this dish is the green hue from Coriander and mint leaves. Thinking of Nilgiris reminds off the green leaves in that beautiful place. The same way, this veg kurma is also enriched with the rich flavour of coriander and mint leaves along with conventional spices. I first tasted this awesome dish in one of the Indian Restaurants "Malgudi" and it was so nice to taste with Naan. When I checked the ingredients in their menu card, I saw this kurma is enriched with mint and coriander leaves. Tried this yummy Nilgiris Vegetable Kurma immediately at home and got nice appreciations from my family :-)
